I just read this with my book club. It is a book about introverts and extroverts, that also looks at the organization of work and school in American society.

It helped me understand a lot about my children- one introvert and one extrovert. And my super extroverted WH. By the way, according to author and various studies cited, extroverts are more likely to have affairs and remarry.

Loved this book. I am an introvert and I'm great at public speaking and socializing. After a party i need a week alone! This book helped me understand why I need so much time to myself, and why it is an advantage in many ways to be an introvert.

My WXH was an introvert so it's no guarantee against cheating.

I also enjoyed this book. It helped me to better understand why I need down time. I spend most of my day talking and interacting with people, so by evening, I'm always grateful to have some down time after the kids go to bed.

I'm not sure if my STBX is introverted or extroverted... I always thought that he was more introverted, but considering how much he lied to me, I'm probably wrong!
